obama's very tough warning to the syrians. that they shouldn't even think about using chemical weapons. >> i'm curious only because there is this report now that united states is employed military contractors on the ground. i think in turkey and jordan, but also inside syria, to help opposition members. should they get their hands on some of these chemical weapons to a, secure them, and b, protect them and c, to do whatever else with them. could that be the catalyst for what syrians are saying and might there be a monocal of truth to their concern if we are in there trying to make sure those chemical weapons do or don't go where they're supposed? >> i think that's possible, but i would guess that it would be very difficult for the opposition forces to get to the chemical weapons. these are held by the most elite of the elite in the syrian army. the army still remains very robust and one of the reasons the syrian regime has not collapsed is that it has a very strong army. traditionally, this was thought to be the strongest army in the arab world. >> more so than the israeli defense forc
.s. moves to shore up syrian opposition groups. the obama administration has designated a group there a terrorist organization and will collectively recognize the coalition of syrian groups as legitimate representatives of the country. this is information that we learned from an interview that president obama did with abc news. in line with that, the u.s. will formally recognize the opposition council as the leader of the syrian people. officials say that the u.s. afghan force may total 9000 after the year 2014. the obama administration plans to keep between 6009 thousand troops in afghanistan after 2014 and they will confine most of them to fortified garrisons near the capital, leaving afghan troops largely without american the advisers in the field. another story from afghanistan -- "slow gains in justice for females." women who are victims of violence often report abuse that -- rarely report abuses to government authorities and rarely see their cases go to trial." that is a story in "the new york times." looking at the domestic front, "ben bernanke is to make a last fiscal cl

and protection of our ally turkey. >> woodruff: nato chief also warned of even stronger action if the syrian government crosses the chemical line. echoing monday's statements by president obama. >> if anybody resorts to these terrible weapons, i would expect an immediate reaction from the international community. >> woodruff: syria has denied any intention of using chemical weapons. russia, a key syrian ally, dismissed the intelligence reports as rumors. yesterday in istanbul, russian president vladimir putin said he understands turkey's concerns about border security, but he warned that deploying patriot missiles could raise fears of a wider conflict. meanwhile, inside syria intense fighting flared again near damascus today. amateur video showed government warplanes carrying out new arrayeds. the syrian capital has seen escalating violence in the last week as rebels try to close the noose on president bashar al assad's regime and the military tries to recapture lost ground. amid the fighting, the state news agency reported that rebel more tar fire killed nine students and a teacher at a sch

, there will be consequences and you will be held accountable. >> president obama this week warned the president of syria, bashar al-assad not to use syria's chemical weapons against his own people. rebel syrians are waging an offensive against other syrians, largely assad's government forces. unnamed u.s. officials say that syria has even gone so far as to load the precursor ingredients of sarin, a deadly nerve gas, into the aerial bombs. whether this activity is to protect the chemicals from advancing rebel forces, or for assad to actually use them against rebel forces, is not clear. as secretary of state hillary clinton points out. >> our concerns are that an increasingly desperate assad regime might turn to chemical weapons or might lose control of them to one of the many groups that are now operating within syria. >> syria automatically denies it intends to use chemical weapons against its its own peo whether rebel or nonrebel, quote. syria stresses again, for the 10th, the 100th time, that if we had such weapons, they would not be used against its people. we would people. whether suicide. we fear t

't kill people. arms do. and obama firing all this rhetoric in the direction of the syrian obsession didn't help a bit. when the saudis and qataris gave the jihadis real arms, good quality arms, that only helped. now our only chance, megyn, to pull this out, for the administration actively, get the cia on the ground, actively supply good quality weapons to the factions we know lean westward. and we can sort them out. it is a myth we can't tell the difference. and we have two interests in syria, in the long term. one, a rule of law democracy of sorts that doesn't abuse women and doesn't harbor terrorists. but there's another thing that people are overlooking. there's an operational prize for us. if we can get our hands on the assad's security services files, it would be a treasure trove telling us who in iraq was betraying us, what the iranians are doing, what the russians are up to. if we're not gaming how to get control of that stuff as soon as assad falls or at least access to it, we're throwing away another great chance. we're good at throwing away chances. megyn: why do say we need th
that the syrian military is moved to mix deadly chemical weapons. they have not confirmed this and they would never use such weapons against their own people. president barack obama has warned against this. >>> they are talking about the fiscal cliff but no word of any significant progress. this comes as another republican says he is willing to break ranks on the standoff. he said he could increase tax rates for upper income americans as part of a plan to cut the federal deficit. some are now looking for a way to save faces a they give in. >>> and they are planning for massive budget cuts as the fiscal cliff talks remain deadlocked. tens of thousands of jobs are on the line here in california. pam for months, pentagon leaders are insisting they are not preparing for major cuts but that's all changing under orders from the white house and they are starting to think about how they will face part of their budget. leon panetta said the cuts will be devastating to our national defense. experts predict, 1 in 5 in california will be lost. no now the arrow space reports -- now the arrow space reports

to win. >> reporter: with the rebels making inroads on damascus itself, monitoring of syrian bases like this where chemical weapons are stored has detected evidence the assad regime may be preparing to use them in a last ditch attempt to save itself, an act the obama administration has warned could trigger military intervention. worst-case scenarios are threatening to become reality. >> it's not going to be a clean outcome. in the best of circumstances, now, it will be chaotic and messy. >> reporter: the u.s. is helping to organize the opposition's military command and later this week is expected to officially recognize its political leadership. what impact that has on the outcome of the civil war remains to be seen. >> glor: david martin, thank you. in egypt the concession offered late yesterday by president mohamed morsi has failed to satisfy hits opponents. and tonight the regime appears to be preparing for the long haul. allen pizzey is in cairo. >> reporter: in a scene of chaotic as the country's politics, egypt's main opposition group tonight rejected the constitution drawn up by
. >> the obama administration is moving closer to recognizing the new syrian opposition council as the sole legitimate representative of the syrian people. it is the latest step in diplomacy that officials hope will end syrian president bashar al-assad regime. it will pave the way for those looking to oust bashar al-assad. secretary of state clinton had been due to attend the meeting had to cancel her trip due to illness. her deputy william burns will leave the u.s. delegation. an international study done every four years say asian students lead the way while u.s. students still do better globally. fourth graders have to improve their scores in reading and math, but progress seems to fall off by eighth grade where math and science scores are stagnant. a new law took effect in colorado. there were no crowds and little fanfare as the state became the second to legalize marijuana. a handful of activists led up on the capitol steps, and the governor shared his approval in an announcement on twitter and in an e-mail. those of the latest headlines on c-span radio. >> punch me, strength and me. ta
desperate syrian government considering the use of chemical weapons against its own citizens. is this still a possibility or has president obama's warning been taken to heart by the authorities? >> well, it's extremely difficult to ascertain right now whether or not that is going to unfold like that. what we do know from western intelligence officials who have told nbc news is chemical weapons have been mixed at least in various military facilities in and around various parts of syria, but at the same time we also know from the syrian government, they have categorically rejected they would use such weapons. the criticism that many would say is you simply cannot trust the syrian regime or take it for its word. when it's gotten desperate it has resorted to brutal violence and there's no doubt it has the capacity, whether it has the political willingness to do that is still uncertain. >> live from kay row. thank you so much. and we'll be right back.

possibly in the future lead to theent duction of american military forces. the obama administration is right they don't want to go into syria. they have avoided a u.s. military intervention but chemical weapons changes everything in the calculation. the a divisive and dangerous moment in the syrian civil war. >> it's scary, scary stuff. ambassador, i want to get your take on one other thing. secretary of state clinton had some comments about ambassador rice, someone who is speculated as her successor to secretary and of state. i want to play that for you. >> it's important to remember what susan said was based on the information that had been given to every senior official. in our administration. and she made very clear in her appearances that the information was subject to change, as more facts were gathered and analyzed by the intelligence community and looked, as often the case, our understanding evolved over time. and we've done our best to keep the american people and the congress informed. that was her goal. >> so obviously, secretary clinton offering a vigorous defense of sus
